Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
For mothers who work outside the home, it is very important to manage breastmilk properly to keep the baby getting their right to exclusively breastfeed until the age of 6 months, and to continue with the addition of complementary solids at the age of 6 to 24 months. One thing that needs to be considered is the media for giving breast milk.
The use of pacifiers can indeed make it very easy for mothers and other relatives who help with childcare to breastfeed their children. However, you need to know that using a pacifier also has the potential to cause several health problems, including:
Confused nipples Babies are more prone to choking Abnormalities in the structure of the baby's teeth and jaws Babies are more prone to experiencing flatulence, colic, frequent belching and winds due to lots of gas entering the digestive tract Difficulty in weaning Therefore, you should be happy if your child doesn't want to suckle using a pacifier. You should look for other, safer alternatives to breastfeeding your baby, for example a spoon, cup feeder, or dropper. In this way, the risk of health problems as mentioned above can be greatly minimized. In addition, breastfeeding your baby without using a pacifier can also reduce the risk of your baby experiencing nipple confusion. That way, your baby will still want to suckle directly from your breast after you work. The consistency of breastfeeding is very important for its role in maintaining the stability of milk production.
In addition to breastfeeding diligently, you can also do the following tips to increase milk production:
Express your breast milk regularly every 2 hours. Drink more. Build a positive mind. Avoid stress or excessive fatigue. Eat high nutritious foods, especially nuts, seeds. If you still have problems in the breastfeeding process, don't hesitate to consult directly with a lactation counselor or your nearest doctor.
I hope this helps.
